Winter Words Festival 2023

Friday 10 February



Join five local poets as they read extracts from Perthshire 101 – a poetic tour around Perthshire and Kinross-shire taking in the geography, history, people and cultural icons of Scotland’s grandest region. From Schiehallion to Castle Huntly, from Pontius Pilate to Ewan MacGregor, from the Pitlochry Fish Ladder to the Murrays Pie, it’s all covered in grand, sweet, serious and occasionally silly poems.

The book’s editor Andy Jackson hosts the event alongside poets Patricia Ace, Morag Anderson, Jon Plunkett and Tim Turnbull.

Andy Jackson is a Salford-born poet and editor of poetry anthologies. His latest solo collection is The Saints Are Coming (Blue Diode, 2020) and he was co-editor of the landmark anthology of poems inspired by Scottish popular culture Scotia Extremis (Luath, 2019). He is also co-editor of the long-running broadsheet Poetry Scotland.
